 Aamb, a talented guitarist has  mastered the art of immersing themselves in written word, even in the most chaotic environments.

His recent appearance at Nviiri's album launch caught the attention of many, not for the music or the festivities, but for his unexpected companion—a novel.

Aamb, real name undisclosed, is known for his musical prowess in acoustic performances.

However, it is his ability to concentrate on reading in bustling surroundings that has sparked curiosity among those who witnessed his unique approach.

Aamb's affinity for reading has become a defining characteristic, as he carries a book with him wherever he goes, even to unexpected places like music events.

Through an interview with Mpasho, Aamb shed light on his reading habits and shared insights into his experience at Nviiri's album launch.

He confessed that reading in lively environments has been a long-standing practice for him. With a variety of books at hand, including novels, comic books, manga, and self-help literature, Aamb can easily block out distractions and dive into the pages before him.

''I really enjoy reading, hence I am able to tune out everything else. I also like experimenting with reading outside as different places with different people give university que atmospheres which, for me, enhances the reading experience.''

Surprisingly, Aamb encountered minimal challenges while reading at the event. Finding a well-lit spot was all it took for him to immerse himself in the captivating narratives of the book.

Although some onlookers found it unusual, others saw it as an opportunity for engaging in conversations about literature, recommending books, and sharing their own thoughts and reviews.

For Aamb, reading at a music event is not about complementing the experience or seeking attention; it is a personal sanctuary that transports him into the depths of storytelling.

As both a lyricist and a guitarist, he finds inspiration in reading books with multiple characters, assigning voices from the surrounding environment to each persona in the story, creating a unique and immersive reading experience.
